Faye (Sarah French), a former actress that lost her vision due to botched laser eye surgery, struggles to put her life back together while living alone in her dream house in the Hollywood Hills. Supported by her friend Sophia (Caroline Williams), she starts opening up to Luke (Tyler Gallant), a personal trainer who is mute and can only communicate through his cell phone. When a masked stranger named Pretty Boy (Jed Rowen) shows up, Faye will realize that she isn't as alone as she thinks.

'Blind' tells the story of Faye, an actress that was having the time of her life until her laser eye surgery went wrong and she became Blind. Faye is having a hard time adjusting to her new life but she has a lot of support from her friend, Sophia who has been blind since birth and her personal trainer Luke who also has a thing for Faye.

Every man that sees her and remembers her hit film adores her but there is one man who goes by the name of Pretty Boy because of the mask he wears who has a deadly obsession with her.

Director, Marcel Walz takes the story from writer, Joe Knetter and creates a spine- tingling horror/thriller and specializes in fear. This is by far Walz's best film to date but it does lean toward being an art house film with all its color and lighting visuals. It is certainly nice to look at but the style does bog it down a little here and there. The good news is it picks up just at the right time and it delivers a shocking and frightening end.

Another thing that was good about the film was its amazing cast, Sarah French are fantastic as Faye, you can feel all her emotions through her facial expressions. The supporting cast are all terrific as well including Tyler Gallant who plays Luke and Caroline Williams who plays Sophia.

'Blind' may not be a perfect film but it is an effective one with its mood and its ability to make its audience feel all the fear as it builds on its tension and suspense.

Blind will be available on November 11th on DVD and Digital. Be sure to check it out, itís the kind of film that creates nightmares.
